I stayed only one night. I choose the hotel for its proximity to the airport, but… There is no airport shuttle at any time. So I ordered taxi for 04:45. A group of 3 people ordered a taxi on 05:00, so they combined us together. When asking the night before for at least coffee (if breakfast will start later), I...

I found myself in Catania looking for a place to spend two nights, and the reviews were great for this hotel. First of all, the grounds are immaculate and the hotel is magnificent. The desk staff couldn't possibly be nicer or more accommodating, including one young lady, Paola, who spent a half hour in the phone arranging a full-day tour...

It's a great idea having something different but the hotel is in need of renovation. The room was very musty and needed airing and we struggled to open 2 suitcases in there.
